Dave Lurie, a familiar name on many trade publications, has been selected to head the Houston-based Powder Coating Institute.

Lurie has been appointed executive director of the trade organization, succeeding Rodger Talbert. Talbert, president of Talbert Consulting, had been technical director of the group since 2009 and added the duties of executive director in April 2011.

Talbert resigned from both positions effective June 1 and was succeeded by Lurie and Ken Kreeger as interim co-directors, a PCI spokeswoman said. Kreeger also served as interim director in 2010 after then-executive director Steve Houston resigned.
